This is an original skate art piece created for The Sheckler Foundation by skateboard legend and artist Steve Olson. The proceeds of this skate art will go The A Skate “Be the Change” Tour presented by the Sheckler Foundation. A Skate provides free skateboard clinics for children with autism.
A true Skateboarding Legend and Pioneer of many moves on the vertical plane; Steve Olson was voted ‘Most Popular Skater of the year’ in 1978 after winning the first Hester Pool Riding Series. Olson has a super cool and wicked sense of style and humor that goes beyond the boundries of the norm and perpetuates an animal magnetism that draws the ladies (and kids) to be by his side for the sheer joy and laughter he emits from always having more fun than anyone!
“My art gives contemporary art a juvenile delinquent phase. Its self-made style icons gleefully trashed conventions of beauty and society while pick pocketing from the coolest underground styles and beliefs of the previous centuries…”—Steve Olson
This charred wood and rebar sculpture measuring 44 inches high and 12 inches wide creates the outline of a skateboard using negative space.
